When I was little my great-aunt had a storage shed out back turned into a home for tons of stray cats. To get us to wash our hands after we played with them, Aunt Ruby would tell us "If you swallow a cat hair, it'll turn into a worm in your stomach." I knew that dogs and cats sometimes got worms so this made perfect sense to me. I believed it well into high school.
When I was a kid, I was looking at a book about dogs and I noticed the breed called Border Collie. It didn't seem to look much like any Collie that I'd known about, and I doubted that I'd ever seen a Border Collie. That all seemed perfectly reasonable at the time, since where I leved in the U.S. was nowhere near a border with either Canada or Mexico. I even thought perhaps if you had one of the more familiar kinds of Collie dogs and then moved to somewhere near a border, the dog would then grow to look like a Border Collie like in the picture I saw.
When I was 5 or 6, the family cat started acting very strange. I asked my mother what was wrong with her, and my mother told me that "The cat is in heat." I didn't know what that meant, so I thought it was the same as when the car "overheated". After that I told my friends to be careful because "The cat is overheated".
We had a collie and she had clumps of matted hair behind her ears. I used to believe that when I squeezed the clumps it made a light come on in her mouth.
When I was about 6 the Apollo landed on the moon, this was on the evening news every night. At the same time our neighbours had a large alsatian dog named Pollo. Night after night I fantasized about how Pollo survived in his small cubicle and how he landed on the moon...
I used to believe that all cats were female (probably confused with "feline") and all dogs were male.
When i was 6 years old i had a dog named Sandy. And i thought she was made of Sand.
When I was around 3 or 4, I believed that all dogs were boys and all cats were girls......I found out that 'myth' was a mistake. It's funny---almost all the dogs I've owned over the years have been boys....and me? I'm alergic to cats....
funny---the things we believe...as kids
When I was little I believed our family dog was a spy for my mom. I always tried to be good in front of him but if I slipped up I would beg him not to tell.
My mom always told us not to stare at dogs doing pottie or having sex because we would get a stye on our eye.
when i was little, i thought that Tom and Jerry is one name Tomanjerry and i actually believed that that's the mouse name cause he always wins the battles :D
I used to believe all dogs were boys and all cats were girls.
i used to think the cat Salem from Sabrina the Teenage Witch was a relative of the talking cats from the Meow Mix commercial.
When I was little, I used to think all dogs were boys and all cats were girls. I guess cats just looked more feminine?
I used to believe that ALL cats were girls, and ALL dogs were boys. There was no other option.
I used to think that white dog poo was produced from white dogs and brown poo from brown dogs
My brother told me that I used to have an older sister but she turned into a dog cause she ate dog food. I didn't believe. He then proceded to pull the "well then, why dont you try it?" come back. Needless to say, I didn't. I still didn't believe him, but to this day he still thinks he convinced me.
I used to believe that, while we were potty-training our dog, he was able to read the newspaper we always put him on to train to pee on that and not the house, since he always used to look down, and, sometimes I even asked him what the news was. Let's just say he looked at me, and then at the floor, and I took it to mean that the news that day wasn't very good. I was only 7.
Iv always been a cat person but I heard from my sister when i was much younger that when you die your cats will eat you body.
So when we first got a cat (i was about 7/8) i thought if i fell asleep it would creep up and eat me.. i did sleep for about 2full weeks until my mother noticed it, and explained my cat wont eat me..
ive been very fond of cats since [=
I used to believe that if you could pick up big white rocks, there would be puppies and kittens underneath. (My sister told me this).
